Peterborough Regional Health Centre

Project Value:$197 Million


ZW Project Management Inc. was selected to provide full Project Management services for the new 500-bed Peterborough Regional Health Centre.

The Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC) is a successful example of centralization of hospital and regional health services – an amalgamation of services from St. Joseph’s Health Centre and the Peterborough Civic Hospital – creating the new Peterborough Regional Health Centre. Servicing a population of more than 300,000 in four counties, PRHC is one of the region’s largest employers with approximately 2,000 staff, 600 volunteers, and 350 physicians with privileges.

The PRHC, a stipulated sum project, was built on land adjacent to an existing hospital. It comprises five blocks that are interconnected – Blocks A & B (six-storeys and a penthouse), Block C (three-storeys), Block D (two-storeys), and the West Block (six-storeys and a penthouse) which also contains the hospital’s main entrance. The blocks, connected by underground tunnels, above-ground corridors and rooms, are separated by a series of courtyards. The 750,000 sq. ft. facility was completed in 2009.
